5 GLOSSARY/ DEFINITIONS:

PTW - Permit-To- Work


Permit-To-Work (PTW) system: A PTW system is a formal written system used to control
and execute certain types of jobs safely, which are identified as potentially hazardous. It is
also a means of communication between different departments, plant supervisors,
operators, agencies etc.
Permit Creator / Initiator / Applicant / Acceptor: The Permit Creator / Initiator / Acceptor
/ Applicant is a person who initiate the PTW and after its approval he accept it for
performing the job. He / She shall be responsible for executing the entire job in full
compliance with the PTW requirements. Permit Creator / Initiator / Applicant / Acceptor is
typically maintenance engineer or equivalent, however terminology of this designation may
vary based upon hierarchy/ organization chart.
Permit Issuer / Issuing Authority (Control room engineer): The Permit Issuer shall be
responsible for review the information provided and amend if required. Permit Issuer /
Issuing Authority is typically Control Room Engineer or equivalent, however terminology of
this designation may vary based upon hierarchy/ organization chart.
Permit Approver: Shift Incharge shall be a Permit Approver. The Permit Approver
shall be responsible for ensuring that the hazards have been evaluated, adequate
controls are provided and precautions are specified in the PTW. Permit Approver is
typically Shift In- Charge or equivalent, however terminology of this designation may
vary based upon hierarchy/ organization chart.
Permit Holder: Person who is supervising the working party at the site and executing the
job. The Permit Holder shall be responsible for commencing and completing the authorized
job while fully complying with all the requirements as mentioned in PTW.
Job Safety Analysis: Job safety analysis (JSA) is a procedure which helps integrate
accepted safety and health principles and practices into a particular task or job. In a

Permit-To-Work Procedure
Document Ref No.
TPSMS/CSP/PTW/008 Rev 02 Date of Issue: 16/01/2017

JSA, for each basic step of the job, it is to identify potential hazards and to recommend
the safest way to do the job.

6 PROCEDURES:
6.1 Applicability:
Valid Permit-To-Work (PTW) and approve Job Safety Analysis (JSA) shall be taken for all
jobs other than approved exception list. Exception list shall be prepared at each division
and shall be approved by division chief.
The Plant / installation which is completely under the supervision / custody of External party
/ contractor; as a principle employer, company has to ensure the PTW system must be in
place. Such PTW system those are from external party / contractors shall be approved by
concerned division chief.

6.2 Preparation
6.2.1 Co-ordination: It is important to ensure that job requiring PTW, shall be planned
and coordinated in order to avoid risks caused by simultaneous activities.

6.2.2 Planning : Careful planning of job requiring a PTW shall take place to ensure:
• Appropriate approval for the job.
• All persons in charge of areas which may be affected are made aware and hence
take precautions against possible interaction with other work activity
• Sufficient time to identify all potential hazards, implement precautions and prepare
the worksite. One suggested technique of achieving this is a Job Safety Analysis.

6.2.3 Job safety Analysis (JSA): Job safety Analysis (JSA) shall be done directly into the
system or alternatively it can be done externally and uploaded in the system.
6.2.4 Types of Permit-To-Work (PTW): The types of work for which PTW systems shall
be applied include maintenance and repair, inspection, testing, construction,
dismantling, modification and cleaning.
The types of Permit-To-Work (PTW) as per SAP-EHS include:

6.2.5 Cross Reference: The objective of cross reference is to ensure that no interaction
takes place between work activities which might endanger the safety of personnel or the
installation. The PTW issuer shall, by knowledge of work going on in his area of
responsibility, be aware of potential interaction when issuing multiple PTWs for the same
piece of equipment or system, or where there may be potential conflict with adjacent work
activities.
Such situations should be minimized by careful planning and suitable precautions which
should include an appropriate method of cross referencing the different tasks.

It may be that the interacting activities are covered by separate PTW issuers, in such cases
close co-ordination shall be necessary.

TPSMS/CSP/PTW/008 Rev 02 Date of Issue: 16/01/2017

For all high risk jobs and Project nature Job, it is mandatory to take approval to
safety while processing the PTW.

If the job is high risk in nature then concerned Head has to change the status to High Risk
Job (HRJB) while assigning the Notification to Person responsible. Only concerned Head is
authorized to set the User Status LRJB & HRJB.

Permit initiator while preparing permits can still change job as high risk even if Concern
head has marked it as low risk.

If the Notification Status is “High Risk Job”, system will not allow to delete the concerned
Head & Safety Approvals in all types of PTW. If User tries to delete the Approvals, System
will show error message.

Concerned Safety Advisor shall check the adequacy of control measures defined in PTW
and JSA for all such high risk jobs. He may further recommend additional control measures
before grant of approval. At PTW clearing stage s/he is responsible to give their inputs in
JSA & PTW and during this s/he may not visit site, however subsequently during site visit
s/he shall check deployment of control measures.

Line management is wholly responsible for the implementation of JSA & PTW at site which
has been cleared by safety. Tool box talk (TBT) shall be done prior to start of each job and
to be recorded as per Annexure -6 {Tool-Box-Talk (TBT) TPSMS/CSP/PTW/008/FORM/
002}.
PTW shall be displayed at site or alternatively it should be made available at site. Permit
Holder shall remain present at site during entire period of job.

6.2.7 Extension of Permit-To-Work (PTW): In order that effective control is maintained in


changing circumstances there shall be a limit on the life of a permit. Depending on
the job, extension of all PTW other Project Nature Permit shall be up to 7 days.
Maximum extension in case of project nature permit may be upto 30 days. It shall be
necessary to intimate about the extension of PTW to all concerns involved. All
concerns shall maintain all existing controls measures in place as mentioned in
PTW & JSA.

6.2.8 Tagging: An essential ingredient of any safe system of work is the method and
integrity of the isolation procedure. The isolation principle to be adapted, prior to carry
out maintenance or repair, will be determined by a number of factors e.g. potential for
pressure, dangerous substances, lack of oxygen, moving machinery etc. It is beyond
the scope of this document to provided guidance on the isolation required for each
potential hazards, please refer Standard operating procedure of each equipments and
Tata Power LOTO procedure - TPSMS/CSP/LOTO/001. In case isolations are required,

TPSMS/CSP/PTW/008 Rev 02 Date of Issue: 16/01/2017

the Issuing Authority will maintain the required isolations. Electrical team will be involved
in this step if electrical isolations are required.

The following additional points should be considered within the isolation


procedures:
• Complex isolations should be planned and recorded on a working drawing. This
should be discussed between the Permit Issuer and Permit Acceptor to ensure all
isolation points are clearly understood and agreed. The marked up drawing should
be readily available to all concerned. Consideration should be given to attaching a
copy to the PTW.
• It is essential that the isolation standard is commensurate with the type of job being
carried out, plant operating conditions and other local influences.
• Isolation procedures should include all energy sources, i.e. mechanical, electrical,
hydraulic pressure etc.
• The tag or key number should be recorded on the PTW form or on a separate form
which should in turn be cross referenced and attached to the PTW form.
• isolation should only be applied and removed on instruction from the person issuing
the PTW
• If more than one task is to be carried out on part of a plant or piece of equipment,
there is a risk that on completion of one of the tasks the isolations are removed and
the equipment is put back into service. Controls should be in place to prevent
premature de-isolation where dual tasks are involved
• if the work is not able to be completed within the shift the site should be checked by
both the Permit Acceptor and the Permit Issuer to ensure it is left in a safe condition
and equipment cannot be reinstated until all job shall be properly completed
• If the PTW is suspended, the status of the job site should be left on display in a
suitable location e.g. Control Room, and the isolation padlock keys kept in a secure
place to ensure no unauthorized access.

All persons authorized to carry out isolations should be assessed for their competence prior
to appointment i.e. they should
• Be suitably qualified
• Have experience on the plant/equipment
• Have received specific instructions on the plant, methods of isolation etc.
• Be able to demonstrate their knowledge by examination.
Their areas of responsibility shall be made quite clear.

6.2.9 Gas Testing: PTW preparation may involve a consideration of the likely presence of
flammable or toxic gases, or oxygen deficiency/enrichment, at the worksite.

Note: Uncontrolled once printed Page 10 of 23


Document Title
The Tata Power Company Ltd
Permit-To-Work Procedure
Document Ref No.
TPSMS/CSP/PTW/008 Rev 02 Date of Issue: 16/01/2017

Where such a consideration is necessary then gas testing shall be undertaken.


Persons involved in gas testing shall be adequately trained in the use of gas testing
equipment, and in the interpretation of results.
The responsibility of what to test for, where to take samples, and the minimum number of
samples to take should lie with the Permit Issuer. Gas testing shall be done as close to the
commencement of work as possible.

Results of any gas testing shall be recorded and timed, as per Tata Power confined space
entry procedure (TPSMS/CSP/CSE/003- Annexure 05/form No
TPSMS/CSP/CSE/003/FORM/003). In case ambient parameters changes beyond
acceptable levels during the work, the PTW shall be suspended.

6.2.10 Signatures: Once PTW approved, auto generated mail shall go to Permit
Initiator to execute the job as requested in PTW. Signature of Permit Holder and
respective field operation engineer (area / equipment owner) shall be taken on initial
issue of PTW and thereafter for revalidation on each day/shift as applicable.

6.3 Process

6.3.1 Display of Permit-To-Work (PTW): It is important that permits shall be displayed so


the persons who need to be aware of them, or to refer to them, are able to do so.

Copies should normally be distributed/displayed as follows:


• At the worksite. Where this is not practicable (e.g. at an exposed location), the
Permit Acceptor of the job should retain the copy, having ensured that the working
party members are familiar with its content and control measures.
• At the main control / co-ordination room, where these should be displayed in a
systematic arrangement.

6.3.2 Revalidation: Permit-To-Work (PTW) should be revalidated in order that the Permit
Issuer can satisfy himself that the conditions under which the PTW was originally
issued remain unchanged to allow work to continue.

Revalidation shall be done on next day before start of the same job as per
Annexure 5 Permit-To-Work (PTW) Revalidation
(TPSMS/CSP/PTW/008/FORM/001). It can be revalidated upto 7 days only except
project nature permit. For project nature permit revalidation may be done upto 30
days. The maximum validity of the permits is defined and revalidation beyond this
period are not allowed. In such cases, the PTW is closed and a new PTW shall be
issued.

6.3.3 Suspension: In the event of any of the following circumstances occurring during the
course of an activity under permit, the Permit Holder must refer back to the Permit Issuer
(through Permit Acceptor) on the appropriate course of action:

TPSMS/CSP/PTW/008 Rev 02 Date of Issue: 16/01/2017

 The specified equipment or tools to be used not being available.


 Any changes in the type and nature of work.
 Occurrence of any condition / situation during the progress of the work that was not
anticipated.
 Any change in the process condition or the surrounding. (E.g. unexpected release of
gas from a nearby tank).
 An emergency in the area.
 Any change in the weather condition.

6.3.4 Shift Hand-overs: Shift changeovers can be one of the most vulnerable times for the
PTW system. The failure to pass on information or the correct information has been
shown to be the cause of many accidents. There is sufficient overlap to allow proper
review and discussion of the status of all Permit-To-Work.

Written means of communicating information can be by:


• PTW Log Book
• PTW Files
• Display Boards
• Computer Screen/Print Out
Or a combination of any of the above. Whichever arrangements are adopted, the
shift handover arrangement shall be monitored regularly to ensure its continued
effectiveness.

6.3.5 Action in an Emergency / break down situation: During emergencies, when


working party is not able to generate notification, PM order and hence PTW; in such
situation control room will use WCT6 and WCT7 to create safety tag number for the
outage. However, maintenance engineer will have to generate - notification, PM
order, PTW subsequently and attach safety tag (by using WCLE & WCD transaction)
number. No safety norms to be violated and standard SOP to be followed. For more
details please refer "SAP – PM Training Manuals (Use of WCT6 & WCT7 -
Guidelines Emergency Outages) available at Sangam web page at following path -
Saarthi > Project Saarthi > Training > Module > Plant Maintenance (PM) > 2.
PM Processes - Others> 06. Creating Safety Tags (WCT6 & WCT&) without
PTW-Emergency Outages.

6.3.6 Monitoring: The monitoring of the PTW shall be during entire span of job execution
by Permit Holder.

TPSMS/CSP/PTW/008 Rev 02 Date of Issue: 16/01/2017

6.3.7 Trial Required After Maintenance Work: If trial of equipment is required to be


taken after the maintenance work is completed, the temporary un-tagging cycle is
initiated. (Refer Tata Power LOTO procedure (TPSMS/CSP/LOTO/001 Rev 01) 6.5
Temporary Removal of Lockout/Tag out Devices)

Process is initiated by authorized person by activating the button “Untag temporarily” in the
work clearance document, and system status is updated as BTUG - Untag temporarily.
(Annexure-1 Permit- To-Work (PTW) - Status Sequence)

Tags are removed from the field and system is restored to original condition. After the tags
are removed and the system condition is restored the authorized person activates a button
in the work clearance document “Temporarily untagged” and the system status is up-dated
as ETUG – Temporarily Untagged.

Trial is taken for the system and after successful completion of the trial, the authorized
person activates the button “Tagged” in the Work Clearance document and system status
is updated as ETG – Tagged.

If trial is unsuccessful then Maintenance team (Permit Initiator) have two options based on
the scenario.

If work can be done to rectify the problem, then the isolations of the field equipments will be
done again using the temporary untagging cycle as explained above. Temporary untagging
cycle will be repeated using the same tags and field equipments will be isolated. Work will
be executed in the equipment and further trial will be taken.

However, if work cannot be executed again and a scope change in work is required then
the PTW shall be closed. Untagging of the field equipments will be done and work
clearance document shall be closed. Scope change in work shall be handled by creating a
sub order through Work Order Management and new PTW will be created.

6.4 Completion
6.4.1 Work Completion: When the maintenance work is completed then maintenance
person indicates in the work order system that work is completed by activating Work
Completed Button on order header and the System Status is updated to WOCO –
Work completed.
Order operations are confirmed and order is updated with a system status as CNF –
Confirmed.

6.4.2 Closing of Permit-To-Work (PTW): After the Work is completed the Permit-To-
Work (PTW) is surrendered and the PTW is closed and the System Status is updated as
CLSD – Closed.

The system provides a facility to automatically set CLSD status on the Permit-To-Work
(PTW) when Maintenance order gets WOCO status.

6.4.3 Un-Tagging Process: After the Permit-To-Work (PTW) is surrendered then un-
tagging process is initiated by activating the button “Untag” in the Work clearance
document and the System status is up-dated as BUG – Untag.

System is restored to original condition as per the un-tagging conditions in the Work
Clearance document and tags are removed from the field equipment and with proper
housekeeping of job site.
Authorized person will activate the button “Untagged” in the Work Clearance Document and
the system status is updated as EUG – Untagged.

6.4.4 Closing the work Clearance Documents: After untagging of the isolation the Work
Clearance Document is closed and the system status is updated as CLSD – Closed.

6.4.5 Closing of Maintenance Order: After the PTW is closed, the order is technically
completed and the system status is set to TECO – Technically Completed. The
order cost is then settled by the finance section to the respective cost center and
order is business completed and system status is up-dated as CLSD - Completed.

6.4.6 Housekeeping: Housekeeping shall be ensured before the start of job as well as
after the completion / cancellation of job. Permit-To-Work (PTW) shall be closed only
after restoration of housekeeping of the Job site.
